This morning I'm trying the Jovan version of Oleg Cassini for Men. It's nice, but for whatever reason, it's not clicking with me as much as the Euroitalia version. It's close. This is more of a polite, old-school fragrance like Balafre, but stronger-smelling than Balafre. I like them, but I think I like knowing what they're like, rather than liking them to wear a lot. Compared to the Euroitalia version, it strikes me as a little more old-fashioned, less cool / hip, but still great. I'd be happy to have a bottle of this, but I'm more likely to seek out the Euroitalia version.I'm sampling, a second vintage scent of the day: Oleg Cassini for Men (Euroitalia/black bottle version). @Marand75 was right about this, it's good. Mouthwatering. I think I can cope without a bottle, maybe. I can wear Calvin instead - it's kind of similar. This is warmer / deeper / lower octave, and less soapy, but otherwise fairly similar to Calvin, to my nose. I'm off to see if anyone refers to this as a fougere.
First Vintage post here, but now that I've found an enabler, probably not my last....

I haven't tried the Jovan version, but I can attest to the Euroitalia version indeed smelling very good. Unfortunately I experienced some longevity issues with it. Maybe I am anosmic to something in its composition or I was unlucky with my bottle. Maybe I should retry, to be fair I haven't worn it more than three or four times yet. One thing that definitely could be better is the sprayer though, the juice comes out like from a fire-hose.The question of which Oleg Cassini for Men to go with digs deep.

Thank you! BDP is my favorite Creed fragrance. I wish my flacon was of the millesime type but it still smells good.Impressive collection! 👍🏻
I own the original but have tried the current version which I also find to be a good representation of its past.View attachment 328952
I find the modern version excellent and I'm not far from preferring the modern version to the vintage.
Can you tell any difference?Thank you! BDP is my favorite Creed fragrance. I wish my flacon was of the millesime type but it still smells good.
